The Kessler difference
Where a person goes for treatment can make all the difference in their recovery. Studies* show that those treated in a specialized rehabilitation hospital – like Kessler Institute – have greater improvement, fewer complications and return home sooner than patients at nursing facilities. We provide the comprehensive program of medical, nursing and therapy care that can make all the difference in your recovery.
